Video: Morrissey – “Back on the Chain Gang” Single out November 23. Also on upcoming double-vinyl reissue of Low in High School. I’m something of a Morrissey apologist but this is not a great cover. Moz’s clunky guitar player doesn’t nail the fluidity of the Pretenders’ original lead guitar line. That part was created by … Continue reading New Morrissey video: Back on the Chain Gang
Video: Morrissey – “Jacky’s Only Happy When She’s Up on the Stage” From Low In High School, out now on BMG. I always thought Morrissey could easily transition to being an English soap star should he ever decide to give up the music game. I mean, look at him: Can’t you just see him scheming … Continue reading New Morrissey video: Jacky’s Only Happy
Video: Morrissey – “Spent the Day in Bed” From Low In High School, out November 17 on BMG. It’s super easy to hate Morrissey. I get it. He says and does a lot of stuff that’s impossible to defend. He applauds Brexit, he cancels tour after tour, he makes you sit through a half hour … Continue reading New Morrissey video: Spent the Day in Bed

The video looks kinda crappy with bad lighting and egregious shots of half-naked women. But you know: gotta get those eyeballs, right?
Right. Cross your fingers for the old grouch to stay healthy and make all of his upcoming shows.

Look at this picture and just imagine the comments. Imagine being a poor soul with ugly shoes who happens to pass by. The insults would be earth shattering. Mozzer, Russell Brand and Noel Gallagher all passing judgment on you in a public space? It’s just too much. But now imagine that rhetorical arsenal put to … Continue reading Introducing Your Judges
Princess Di’s demise was foreshadowed in Morrissey’s music.
Morrissey lists his favorite songs for BBC Radio 4.
Morrissey storms off stage after he gets hit with bottle.
According to a post on fan site True To You, Morrissey would like it to be known that he “has not received a royalty from EMI since 1992” and “last received a royalty payment from Warners ten years ago.” This comes in response to his former labels releasing some new vinyl box sets. The 7″ … Continue reading Morrissey Gets No Royalties
